Bitcoin witnessed a sudden rise during the past week, reaching $28,000 on Sunday, which means that the price of the cryptocurrency has increased by approximately 9.1% during the past seven days until the moment of writing this report, which led to raising the market value of Bitcoin to reach $541 billion. Moreover, Bitcoin trading volume has also increased significantly over the same time period, with nearly $37 billion worth of the currency being traded in the past 24 hours alone.
It should be noted that the last time Bitcoin touched the threshold of approximately $28,000 was in June 2022, following the fall of Terra and UST.
